Shade for Schools Enhances Safety &
Extends the Classroom

From daycares to universities, schools need shaded areas to provide comfortable and sun-safe outdoor spaces for learning, recreation, dining and gathering. Shaded outdoor classrooms and assembly areas provide space for social distancing and fresh air.

Apollo Sunguard offers shade structures that protect students, faculty and staff from UV radiation, the primary cause of skin cancer, and also lower ambient temperatures by up to 20 degrees. Thereby, reducing the risk of overheating and other heat related injuries.

Apollo Sunguard: The Titans of Shade

As the oldest privately owned shade manufacturer in the country with the industry’s strongest warranty, you could say that Apollo Sunguard is the titan of shade. In fact, one of Apollo Sunguard’s more popular shade structure is called the Titan for its great size and strength.

Specifically designed and engineered to span a large area, the Titan is the perfect shade structure for school campuses as it can enhance safety for students and staff and provide outdoor areas that extend the school’s space.

Obstacle-fee, the Titan also helps to define spaces spectacularly, making outdoor areas more inviting and functional. To learn more on how we can help you plan your school shade, including long-term use of space, ease of maintenance and budge contact us today.
